Project updates

Project details

Council is planning improvements to Alex Trevallion Plaza.



In November 2016 Inner West Council completed community engagement about streetscape upgrades in Marrickville Town Centre, the Alex Trevallion Plaza is located in Marrickville Town Centre.

What is happening now?

The proposed upgrade will create a more pleasant environment for pedestrians and improve the existing streetscape. The proposed improvements include:

  • New paving
  • Installing more seating
  • Removing existing shelters, installing a new shelter and fixed umbrellas for dining areas
  • Constructing ramp access to Post Café
  • Providing landscaped garden beds
  • Replacing existing trees with indigenous shade trees within the garden beds
  • Installing passive irrigation for trees and landscaping
  • Upgrading the lighting and installing decorative lighting
  • Relocating amenities such as bins and electricity meters
  • Relocating the drainage pits and pipes in Marrickville Lane
  • New pavement line marking and signage in Marrickville Lane and Silver Street as required

Improving safety

As part of the upgrade Council is proposing to provide a raised threshold in Marrickville Lane at Silver Street, levelling the surfaces to improve pedestrian safety. There will be no parking loss.
